Why not discover a different aspect of Sheffield Park next  time you visit?  Take a walk through the parkland to the wildlife haven and flood meadow. The river Ouse runs across the bottom of the field and occasionally bursts its banks during the winter months. When the water level is high, you can see the original meanders that once snaked across the field.  We hope to reinstate these one day. On an early morning visit, it is often possible to experience the atmospheric mists rising off the land with the winter trees breaking through like silhouettes.

Our cricket history

Cricket formed the backbone of leisure time for the 3rd Earl of Sheffield. His legacy can still be experienced up on the original cricket pitch, where you can also enjoy stunning views over the garden.
